A 10.2 CFM Rotary Screw Compressor UNDER $3000

Post by Joe Jones » Sun Mar 13, 2022 11:56 am

What are your thoughts on this compressor?

I have a large Ingersoll-Rand rotary screw air compressor that I love. It cost me nearly $7,000.00. It has a TAS (Total Air System) that removes water from the air BEFORE it goes into the storage tank, and it is sleep next to it quiet!

I was poking around the Net, and came across this company that sells a relatively small, portable rotary screw air compressor for under $3,000.00 It has no storage tank, but those are easy enough to find and plumb into a system. You would also need a water separator, such as the Harbor Freight Tools $499.00 refrigerated Water Separator.

This topic caught my interest Joe. Was excited to check out the link but after seeing the unit and the specs I have my doubts on how good this would be for that kind of money.

It is a rotary screw compressor with no storage tank, and no water separation unit. it is the "barebones" rotary screw mechanism. i believe it would work very well, but you would need a tank to store 60 to 80 gallons of air, and some means to separate hew water from the air before it reaches the plasma machine.

I get all that, to me it just looks cheap and the specs aren't fantastic so I would be concerned about spending that kind of money on it. If you decide to pull the trigger on one I certainly am interested to hear what you think of it.
